what I really find great about that is
very often I think a lot of people
that DJ in situations, we all got our
laptops with our music on it.
And if we show up to a gig and
your other homie's already has his laptop
set up, it's really difficult for
him to disconnect his laptop so you could
set yours up.
Cuz obviously, that could be a problem
with downtime in the music.
And nobody wants to stop the music in the
middle of a club night.
So what the great thing about Traktor is
we spoke about earlier about beat grids.
And if you hit the lock button,
that the lock button will actually save
the beat grid to the MP3.
You could put in on a USB key and take it
to another person's track.
That works for everything in Traktor.
That works for your saved queue points,
your saved loop points,
everything that you make to that track
saves to the MP3 itself.
So, I could put all my music on a USB key,
take it over to my friend's computer and
load up all my tracks, my beat grids are
there, my queue points are there, my loops
are there, everything that I want is saved
on that, on that individual track.
So you don't have to feel like you're
playing on another person's computer.
As well as your tracks, in Traktor, we can
go ahead and in the Preferences section,
you'll notice in the bottom left-hand
corner we have two buttons,
we have an Import button, and we have an
If you hit the Export button, you get a
little window that pops up here.
And in this window you'll notice you have
a list of of options.
We have Hotkey layouts,
MIDI layouts, GUI layouts Broadcasting for
We haven't even talked about that, but
you could actually broadcast on the
internet from Traktor itself.
Your audio device settings which is your
sound card, your Audio 8 DJ.
Everything that you could want that you
could customize on Traktor, they all
pop up in this list and you basically just
put a check in each individual box.
Once you push that Check, you hit the OK
button, and then you can name it.
For instance, I'm gonna name this one drum
cells Traktor settings,
and I can hit the Save button.
And basically what it does is it saves
everything that I did to Tractor.
All my screen layouts that I, I didn't
want the effects to show up.
I didn't want all this stuff.
All my customized keyboard mappings on my
it saves it to one tiny little file called
a TSI file.
So, let's say I'm DJing a show and my ha,
my homie's got his computer set up.
I bring my USB key.
I got my TSI file on there and all my
MP3s, I plug it into his computer.
I can go ahead and hit the Import button,
import my drum cell Traktor settings TSI
And everything that I have set up on my
computer that's customized for my system,
is now going to be set up on his computer.
It's that simple.
And it's really easy that even when I
disconnect and he goes back in play,
he can just re-import all of his TSI
So, that way it's always modular, it's
always easy to travel with,
and you never have to worry about feeling
uncomfortable on anyone else's laptop.
So that's a brief description of how you
can go inside of Traktor,
customize the interface, only look at the
things that you wanted to look at.
You know, even stuff like hitting this
little magnifying glass which
opens up only the browser, you can only
see the music, all that stuff.
I urge you to sit down, customize your
interface, and make Traktor yours.
That way it's more powerful in your hands
and you can do some cool stuff with it.
So that's it for screen layouts and, and
doing customized stuff to your Tracktor
